Press release date: May 15, 2017

Montreal, QC / Windsor, CT - May 15th, 2017 – Walter Surface Technologies, the global industry leader in surface treatment technologies, is excited to announce the launch of “Test Drive Flexsteel™, Take Home a Mustang GT” contest.

Starting May 15th, 2017, and open across the United States and Canada, customers who purchase specially-marked 10-pack of Flexsteel™ flap discs will find a promo code inside and will have the opportunity to enter at to be eligible to win the grand prize, a 2018 Ford Mustang GT, or 75 other prizes.

As the newest addition to Walter’s industry-leading family of trimmable flap discs, Flexsteel™ features a unique zirconia abrasive grain that self-sharpens with less pressure than ordinary flap discs. This means Flexsteel™ won’t bog down the grinder or glaze under heavy load. In turn, it helps improve on-the-job productivity and achieve better results.

“Flexsteel™ is absolutely worth a test drive,” asserted Dan Pirro, Vice-President, Marketing at Walter Surface Technologies. Flexsteel™ flap discs offer fast removal rate on steel, and the trimmable backing pad extends disc life. The product performs exceptionally well in metal fabrication, construction, and MRO applications.

“The association with the Mustang GT is a natural fit,” said Mr. Pirro. “Like the iconic Mustang, Flexsteel™ is a best-in-class product that will positively surprise. We want metalworking professionals to test the product in their facilities so they can experience the speed, power, and performance for themselves. And they might just take home a beautiful new 2018 Mustang GT!”

Specially-marked Flexsteel™ flap discs are available from participating distributors. To find a distributor and to get full contest details, go to
